Psalm 126: 5 Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.6 Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow,will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.
Dear Chosen ones of God, a lot of times we have these questions – Does God know me? Does He know my struggles and troubles? The Bible says that God knows you (Jeremiah 1:5). He knows your strengths and He knows your weakness and troubles too. During our difficult times we don’t see Him but the Bible says He never leaves us nor forsakes us (Deuteronomy 31:6). Just imagine you and your friend going for a trip in your car and all of sudden the road gets bumpy. Will your friend get off the car because the road got bumpy? The answer is no. The other aspect is that you cannot look at your friend while you drive through this bad patch. You have to look at the road and obviously when the road gets rough your driving has to be more focused. But the luxury of having a companion in a drive is that you can communicate with him. And what a companion we have in Jesus Christ. In the journey of life Jesus Christ is with us. If Jesus is in your car He is also going through the same bumps as you are going through. He knows it all. Although you may not see Him but if you pay attention you will be able to hear Him and speak to Him.
The tools and tactics of the enemy are directed to put a pause in whatever you are chosen to do. At times the circumstances feel so unbearable that we want to stop and quit. Just because the task got difficult does not mean it is impossible. Philippians 4:13 says that “I can do all things through Christ Jesus” even the most difficult things. God did not make you a quitter. HE made you in HIS image a victor. No matter how hard and difficult your circumstances are, don’t quit or put a pause to what you are called to do. In-spite of your sorrow if you carry on sowing in the kingdom of God you will reap joyfully. You are a generation of royal priests. It doesn’t matter whether you are a full time minister or a house wife or a business person or a student etc.. Don’t quit because the harvest time is near and the harvest is plentiful. Although it may be difficult for you to even imagine your tomorrow, remember God is in control. Your reward does not come from man it comes from God. Have a great day Pr. T.Bakshi
